PLAYERS: Bart Scott
TEAMS: New York Jets
The Jets have had some troubles defensively this season, but as Bart Scott said this week on Rome is Burning … once you start to average out Darren McFadden’s gonzo game against the Jets, things are coming back in focus.  Over the past month we’ve seen what the Jets defense is capable of, and it’s starting to be reflected statistically. So statistically speaking, just how good is this defense?   Yards Per Game: 8th Overall (319) 3rd Down Conversion Percentage: 2nd Overall (31.4%) Takeaways: T-2nd Overall (19 takeaways) Football Outsiders: 2nd Overall, (1st vs. pass, 8th vs. run) Honestly, to me the most convincing stat to me is their third down percentage.  Teams that can be near the top of the league in third down percentages is how defenses dominate.  Throw all the sacks, interceptions, tackles, yards, or whatever else out the window … when it comes down to it, it’s about getting the offense off the field — something obviously the Jets are doing pretty well right now.
